Names -> Cool Band Names -> G, Page 3

Whenever I hear a cool phrase somewhere, I like to exclaim "That would make a cool band name". This page is a list of such names.

I can not verify whether these names have been taken yet or not. If your band happens to already use one of these names sorry. If you want to use a name you see here, you'll need to verify it's not already in use.

Good In The Sack They are actually a band out of Austin. I thought it would be cool to introduce the bank as "Hi, we're Good in the Sack." A-Lex
Good Luck With The Apocalypse Its from the movie Bruce Almighty. G
A Good Name For A Band A Swedish punk band calls themselves "A Good Name For A Band", which doesn't need any explanation. It's just an awesome name for a band!  Joe
Good Question Why is it cool? Leme give you some imagery: You're in a packed club and a band is playing onstage..youve missed their name..so you ask the person beside you, screaming over the ear abusing music, 'What's this band called?' he, hearing your question, nods and shouts back, 'Good Question!' it could be BEAUTIFUL man...just don't knock it till ya try it. Murray
Good Riddence Simon Ok, so here the story. So today when i was on this cite, I heard all this silverware clattering and thought “Charlie” because he loves to screw with the dishwasher. Sure enough, I come in to find the bloody, scarred remaints of the dishwasher’s contents. Just as I start to pick up that mess, I hear this “gaak. Gak. Gaaakklle. Gkdlselallaakkk. Smack smack.” so I look beside me just in time to find Zero, my adorable puppy,(named after Jack Skellington's dog in The Nightmare Before Christmas.) inhaling an unknown red thing. So when I run towards him to shove my hand down this throat (literally) and save his stupid doggy life, he sees me coming and tries to get it down his throat faster than ever, as if it’s a life or death situation and he just has to get it into his stomach or else immediate death, spontanious combustion, and the end of the world. So after shoving my hand into his slimy esophigus and pulling out a balloon covered with slimy I-don’t-want-to-know-what, I see simon, another brother who's 6, beside me, with about 50 ballons in his fist just watching the whole thing. God. You’d think that if you were 2 feet away watching your dumb but adorable puppy eat itself to a shallow grave you'd want grab it from him. Grr. So after screaming at simon, my mom and dad and sister grace and other sister claire come to see who's being murdured (and yes, I used a lot of “ands”) so then they scream at me and simon and each other, and there's just a lot of confused screaming until simon runs upstairs sobbing dramatically to his room and I say “Good riddence, Simon.” Inspiration hits and I come into the living room to type this long involved paragraph. Just think about the name tho. It’s a good name. LN awesome
The Good Things I love Fall Out Boy and their song "My Heart is the Worst Kind of weapon". In that song it says "you wouldn't know a good thing if it came up and slit your throat." yup. Thats my reason. Bob
Good With Waffles Can you picture a frontman screaming "Thanks for coming! Goodnight, we're Good With Waffles!"? It'd be awesome! I came up with it as a joke when my band was discussing names. Mac Willaert
Goodie Poets My friend and I always go over to this chicks house and they're always saying how good we are. That we never get into trouble and such. Anyways, my boy said yeah, we the goodie mob. But since that name was taken by a rap group we changed it to the Goodie Poets.  Rebel With A Cause
Goodwill Massacre Seemed like a cool heavy metal band name. I misread a sign outside a church.  glad - H!
Gopher Baroque Here in Hawaii, the famed 442nd Regimental Combat Team's motto was "Go For Broke." Also, a movie of the same name. Would also make a cool name for a boat. Willie Wilson

Gramma Sutra "Long lost John Waters' movie?- or maybe it should be?. princejellyfish
Grammatical Calvinball I use the word 'grammatical' a lot. One time (this is Calvin's quote XD), I said, "All our games end up turning into Calvinball." So, hence, Grammatical Calvinball. therealdeepblue
Grampa Juice Well my grampa asked me to get him some juice so i asked him i wonder what grampa juice tastes like, and my grampa thought it would be a cool name. Jimmy Marshall

Grand Larceny Well, larceny means the act of stealing and theft. So if you are going for that whole metal or something that means theft and breaking the law, the shoe should fit. Zack M

Grand Theft Daughter This is what I thought the video game "Grand Theft Auto" was called. sam

Grandma Swears > Me Not to be redundant, but COME ON! How weird would it be if the members of the band had grandmothers that swore more than them? This was inspired by my backwards life. The part I'm talking about is the fact that my brother scoulds my grandmother for swearing, not the other way around. How weird is that? 300 Bernard St. Girl
Grandmas in Spandex Whenever I come across something I find disturbing, I try to get it out of my head by thinking of something I find even more disturbing...but kind of funny too.

Grapefruit Kiss I was drinking red grapefuit juice the other day, and thought "WoW. This is so good. Sweet but bitter at the same time. Kindof like lost love." Thought it might make for something musical, like a band name, or a song title. Teri
Grass Be Green We where just screwing around talking about something if there weren't certain words. Someone said "grass be green". We just liked it. Shade

Great Shirt Alert From an episode of "Cougar Town". Jules just wanted to say it. Brian Kelly
Great Things Go Live It sounds very cool and a good name for a pop music group to get attention! Youtube Girl
Greater Than or Equal to Jim Because Less Than Jake just sounds so condescending. And my name is Jim. Jim Hat

Green Toenail Spilled guacamole on my foot. Didn"t wipe it off and grossed out friends an hour later, who thought it was infected.  Mat
Greene Because I like it and it's spelled as some one's name and not the color. Even though some people do have the last name Green as well. I think it works as a good anouncement, like " Ladies & Gentalmen here is... GREENE!" Joe Hobeaux
greethoeven my dog's name is greta but we call her all kinds of things like greethoeven (like ludwig van beethoven the composer), hooten-hoeten, etc. sounds like a great band name, especially if you are dutch. queen of the harpies

Grey Flamingo When flamingos are depressed, they don't eat shrimp which is i think what makes then pink. Whithout shrimp they revert to there natural color: grey.

Gringo Fare This came from a Mexican restaurant menu... the section listing American, or "gringo" foods, like cheesburgers. LL
Grinning Evil I inspired the name off of those old 70s smiley-face posters that say "Have a nice day". I created a character out of that called Mr. Smiley, a smiley-face that has long hair, a human body, a sicko grin(many teeth), and is a metalhead. From this, I created the band name "Grinning Evil" because Mr. Smiley is an evil bastard. After that, I made Mr. Smiley the mascot of the band. Sounds like a great metal band, eh? ironman
Griswald Splicers ummm... its the old thing they used to make movies out of... where they would take film cut it, and splice in the new film. for editing.....It's really big and takes up the whole room.
